Admission to the Library is free and open to everyone.
Our staff are always willing to help and advise. We are a reference library - you cannot borrow. All material can be studied on site, and a photocopying/scanning service is available.
If you want to visit the Library to study you need to make an appointment. Individual and group tours are also welcome by appointment. You can also drop in to browse our ground floor exhibition space any time between 1pm and 5pm Wednesdays to Fridays.
The Archives database contains details of our archival material including trade union records, personal papers and records of organisations. It also contains details of the objects we hold such as banners, pictures, mugs and badges.Click to search the catalogue
